"I'm no dame!"65 years ago, a blonde small fry played by Sandra Dee picked up a surf board, showed the boys at the beach what she was made of, and completely changed the world. No, really. In honor of the anniversary of the teen beach movie that started it all, GIDGET, The Wives Colangelo are diving in deep and discussing the groundbreaking source material, how a teenage girl is responsible for popularizing surfing in the continental United States, and look at how unintentionally gay this movie is and has always been.----Become a Patron!https://www.patreon.com/thisendsatprom----Article ReferencedGidget: The Story of Hollywood's First Surfing Star (https://www.surfertoday.com/surfing/gidget-the-story-of-hollywoods-first-surfing-star)Just a Doll in Dungarees: Revisiting Gidget (https://the-toast.net/2014/07/16/just-doll-dungarees-revisiting-gidget/)----Find the Show on Twitter & Instagram: @ThisEndsAtPromBJ Colangelo —Twitter & Instagram: @BJColangeloHarmony Colangelo — Twitter & Instagram: @Veloci_trap_tor----------Logo Design: Haley Doodles @HaleyDoodleDoTheme Song: The Sonder Bombs 'Title': https://thesonderbombs.bandcamp.com/

Cadet Captain Jennifer Stone: "You're on my list, maggot!" Kelly Collins: "You'd be on mine if I had one!"Some folks celebrate the 4th of July in the States as Independence Day, but here at This Ends at Prom we're honoring the queer tension of the military school propaganda disguised as a Disney Channel Original Movie, CADET KELLY. We've got Lizzie McGuire and Kim Possible doing aggressive drill team dance-offs and Gary Cole demanding to be called "Sir." This is a shorter episode so you can get back to eating food off the grill, blowing off fireworks, and plotting how to overthrow this ridiculously corrupt government before November.

"Is she in slow motion again?"As Pride Month comes to a close, The Wives Colangelo are diving into a sapphic romantic comedy that's so sweet it'll give you a cavity with CRUSH (2022). Would a pun be enough to steal your heart? Have you ever done something you're not good at just to get closer to your crush? Has your mom given you a glow-in-the-dark dental dam?

"Come on, it's not every day that your best friend grows a penis."It's been a while since The Wives Colangelo tackled a body-swap movie, so they're throwing good taste out the window and giving THE HOT CHICK a fair shake. Everyone remembers all of the problematic elements, but do you remember all of the heart? It's a complicated movie starring a super close-minded jerk, but for a movie trying to profit off of shock value, there's a shocking amount of pro-teen girl goodness in this odd time capsule.----Become a Patron!https://www.patreon.com/thisendsatprom----Article ReferencedAn Interview with Rob Schneider: https://www.ign.com/articles/2002/12/12/an-interview-with-rob-schneider----Find the Show on Twitter & Instagram: @ThisEndsAtPromBJ Colangelo —Twitter & Instagram: @BJColangeloHarmony Colangelo — Twitter & Instagram: @Veloci_trap_tor

"What's her problem anyway? She don't eat, she don't talk, she don't do anything!"You didn't think The Wives Colangelo were going to write and and release a book about SLEEPAWAY CAMP and not do an episode on it, did you? Years in the making, This Ends at Prom finally tackles one of the most important and impactful films for both of the hosts, give a sneak peek at some of the conversations that can be found in their book, and discuss why this low-budget slasher still has merit after all these years.

"Ever since I was a child, people said my family was cursed. Mom tried to protect us with God. Dad tried to protect us with wrestling."It's Harmony's birthday so The Wives Colangelo are honoring her teen girl experience by talking about one of the most important things to her coming-of-age: professional wrestling. And there's no better way to dissect growing up in a masculine space and the crushing pressure of the patriarchy than to talk about Sean Durkin's phenomenal film, THE IRON CLAW. Joining the team is returning guest and dear friend Alex Steed, who is tagging in to tackle the beautiful, heartbreaking, and complicated world of manhood.----Become a Patron!https://www.patreon.com/thisendsatprom-----Follow Our Guest: @AlexSteed / @YouAreGoodPod-----Find the Show on Twitter & Instagram: @ThisEndsAtPromBJ Colangelo —Twitter & Instagram: @BJColangeloHarmony Colangelo — Twitter & Instagram: @Veloci_trap_tor----------Logo Design: Haley Doodles @HaleyDoodleDoTheme Song: The Sonder Bombs 'Title': https://thesonderbombs.bandcamp.com/
"Poets, geniuses, revolutionaries. Lemonade Mouth has been called all of these things. But the real story, the story of our band came to be, is a mystery to them all."May-usical Month comes to a close with an all-time great Disney Channel Original Movie and arguably the best made-for-TV teen movie about a fake band, ever, LEMONADE MOUTH! This week the Wives Colangelo are joined by returning guest Michael Varrati to talk about DCOMs as baby's first cult films, why this movie transcends its target audience, and we say a prayer to Lesbian Jesus.----Become a Patron!https://www.patreon.com/thisendsatprom-----Follow Our GuestSocial Media: @MichaelVarratiMidnight Mass Podcast: https://open.spotify.com/show/0gUZDt6rbL9rIuvWbajGZ8-----Article Discussed10 Years of Lemonade Mouth: The Perfect DCOM (https://oberlinreview.org/23546/arts/10-years-of-lemonade-mouth-the-perfect-disney-channel-original-movie/)-----Find the Show on Twitter & Instagram: @ThisEndsAtPromBJ Colangelo —Twitter & Instagram: @BJColangeloHarmony Colangelo — Twitter & Instagram: @Veloci_trap_tor----------Logo Design: Haley Doodles @HaleyDoodleDoTheme Song: The Sonder Bombs 'Title': https://thesonderbombs.bandcamp.com/
"Seventeen and you can't stop me! Seventeen and you won't boss me! You cannot control me father! Daddy's girl's a fucking monster!"It's BJ's birthday so to celebrate the Wives Colangelo are getting goth, singing their faces off, and making sure their organ payments are on time as to not face the Repo Man. That's right, it's finally time for REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA! What's up with the Vaseline filter? Is this Paris Hilton's best role? And where exactly does that Zydrate come from?

“It was the first time I realized that absolute reality could be so much more fun than fantasy"While this one might only be a musical on a technicality, the theatrical, over-the-top, explosive feelings of CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE DRAMA QUEEN were worth talking about! Lindsay Lohan is a compulsive liar and Megan Fox is the meanest, hottest girl in school, what more could you want?

“I mean, if I don't have a personality of my own, so what? I'm an actress! I can put on as many personalities as I want!"The Wives Colangelo are tackling one of the very few movies This Ends at Prom will ever cover to have won an Oscar, let alone two! That's right, it's time to audition for FAME. This week's discussions include coming-of-age in a landscape that already treats you like an adult, why Irene Cara is a tour de force, and gush about working-class dads who love their sons.-----Become a Patron! https://www.patreon.com/thisendsatprom-----Article DiscussedFAME Dared To Tell The Truth About Making It In Show Business: https://thespool.net/reviews/movies/fame-review/ -----Find the Show on Twitter & Instagram: @ThisEndsAtPromBJ Colangelo —Twitter & Instagram: @BJColangeloHarmony Colangelo — Twitter & Instagram: @Veloci_trap_tor----------Logo Design: Haley Doodles @HaleyDoodleDoTheme Song: The Sonder Bombs 'Title': https://thesonderbombs.bandcamp.com/

“I will grind you to sand beneath my Louboutin heel."One of the most important teen movies in history was given the musical treatment this year, but the studios certainly didn't make that clear! The Wives Colangelo are kicking off MAYusical month 2024 with MEAN GIRLS: THE MUSICAL (THE MOVIE)!

“Kat, such a good girl. Where did we go wrong with her sister Daisy?"The coming-of-age of three young Portuguese-American friends who work at a pizza parlor in a seaside Connecticut town, MYSTIC PIZZA tells three different stories of girls growing up, learning about love, and trying to figure out what's in the secret sauce of the best pizza in town. This week the Wives Colangelo are worshipping working-class women with big hair, thirsting after a weirdly hot Vincent D’Onofrio, mocking rich WASP names like "Steamer," and telling a very special story from Harmony!-----Become a Patron! https://www.patreon.com/thisendsatprom-----Find the Show on Twitter & Instagram: @ThisEndsAtPromBJ Colangelo —Twitter & Instagram: @BJColangeloHarmony Colangelo — Twitter & Instagram: @Veloci_trap_tor----------Logo Design: Haley Doodles @HaleyDoodleDoTheme Song: The Sonder Bombs 'Title': https://thesonderbombs.bandcamp.com/

“There was only one way I'd ever get what I wanted. I would have to become exactly like those people l saw getting kissed in the movies. I would have to become: a superstar."25 years ago, Molly Shannon brought her beloved Saturday Night Live character to the big screen with a hilarious coming-of-age film filled with actors in their 30s playing high schoolers, an abundance of references to old made-for-TV movies, Will Ferrell as Jesus, multiple scenes of a girl making out with a tree, and sketch comedy legends doing what they do best to give us SUPERSTAR. This week the Wives Colangelo pay their respects to Mary Katherine Gallagher by praising a movie about yearning, developing a personality based on the media you consume, and ridiculously quotable one-liners. -----Become a Patron! https://www.patreon.com/thisendsatprom-----Find the Show on Twitter & Instagram: @ThisEndsAtPromBJ Colangelo —Twitter & Instagram: @BJColangeloHarmony Colangelo — Twitter & Instagram: @Veloci_trap_tor
“Life sucks and people are jerk-offs."We're only four months into 2024 and we've already got a killer coming-of-RAGE story to talk about, Zelda Wililams and Diablo Cody's LISA FRANKENSTEIN! The Wives Colangelo discuss '80s teen comedies, the glory of being an actual weird girl, the return of Diablo Cody to the teen girl horror space, and we hear from This Ends at Prom's official pre-teen correspodent, Roxie Allen (who has made this film her entire personality).

“Just goes to show you, Nick. You can never be too careful."The incomparable Sarah Marshall joins The Wives Colangelo this week to tackle one of the prickliest teen girl movies out there, and celebrate the feature film debut of Alicia Silverstone with THE CRUSH. Let's talk about the deeply weird true story behind the film, try to figure out the logistics of putting a functional carousel in an attic, and the effectiveness of weaponizing bees. The show gets into some weird and dark territory, but with Sarah Marshall around, there's still plenty of laughs to be had. -----Become a Patron! https://www.patreon.com/thisendsatprom-----Follow Sarah's Podcasts! @YoureWrongAboutPod and @YouAreGoodPod------Find the Show on Twitter & Instagram: @ThisEndsAtPromBJ Colangelo —Twitter & Instagram: @BJColangeloHarmony Colangelo — Twitter & Instagram: @Veloci_trap_tor----------Logo Design: Haley Doodles @HaleyDoodleDoTheme Song: The Sonder Bombs 'Title': https://thesonderbombs.bandcamp.com/
“You can torture us and bomb us and burn our districts to the ground. But do you see that? Fire is catching... And if we burn... you burn with us!"Sequel month comes to an end as The Wives Colangelo close the chapter of THE HUNGER GAMES trilogy. This week the show tackles the financial decisions to split the story into two movies, discuss the film's (unfortunate) continued relevance, and honor Donald Sutherland - the current frontrunner for the male actor who has appeared in the most movies discussed on the show thus far.

“I want you to know that just by trying out today, you're already a winner. Unless of course you get cut, in which case, technically a loser."Bring it? Oh, it's already been brought-en. Sequel month continues as the wives finally dive back into the cheerleading juggernaut franchise with BRING IT ON AGAIN, and are joined by writer, musician, and all-around badass, Tara Giancaspro. Together they discuss old school mascots, the effectiveness of cheering in family heirloom pearls, and wonder why this film is so forgotten for being shockingly hilarious. ----Become a Patron! https://www.patreon.com/thisendsatprom ------Follow Our Guest!@sweatylamarr Subscribe to her Substack! https://taragiancaspro.substack.com/ Listen to her music at Sweaty Lamarr!------Find the Show on Twitter & Instagram: @ThisEndsAtPromBJ Colangelo —Twitter & Instagram: @BJColangeloHarmony Colangelo — Twitter & Instagram: @Veloci_trap_tor----------Logo Design: Haley Doodles @HaleyDoodleDoTheme Song: The Sonder Bombs 'Title': https://thesonderbombs.bandcamp.com/
“I always wanted to be one of the shiny, happy people.."Sequel month continues with an oft-maligned legacy sequel, THE RAGE: CARRIE 2. The Wives Colangelo discuss the wild production history, praise the film's ahead-of-its-time themes, wonder whether or not Rachel was secretly in love with Lisa, and crown Walter the dog as Horror's Goodest Boy Who Doesn't Want To Be In a Horror Movie.

“My daydream was always the same - that some day, I was going to get to Chicago, because that's where they make Dance TV."This week The Wives Colangelo are heading back to the 1980s and dancing to their hearts' content with GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN. Does doing backflips automatically mean you're the best dancer? Why didn't we teach white girls with curly hair what to do other than brush them out into frizz?
